The Chronicles of Narnia

According to What’s on NetflixNetflix is ​​courting Greta Gerwig (Barbie) to direct “the first two films in its upcoming reboot of The Chronicles of Narnia as a streaming film and television franchise.”


Constantine 2

During a recent interview with The Wrapdirector Francis Lawrence stated he hopes to make his Constantine sequel a “real R-rated movie” instead of the “R-rated movie that’s really a PG-13 movie” he felt the first film was.

One of the biggest things for me about the first one we followed, per Warner Bros., the rules to make a PG-13 movie in terms of violence, blood, language, sexuality. But the ratings board gave us a hard R based on their the gray zone of intensity. And my big, big regret was that we have an R-rated movie that’s really a PG-13 movie. And if I was going to have to go have an R, I would have really made an R-rated movie. I would have made it much scarier and much more violent and I would have really made an R-rated movie.

The idea is this time, at least for me, is to really go at it and make a real R-rated Constantine which is, I think, what people always wanted originally, not the PG-13 version that just happens to get an R .


thunderbolts

Meanwhile, David Harbor described his Thunderbolts team as “losers” in a recent interview with cartoonsBook.

We’re like losers, which I like (laughs). We’re the losers. I think it’s fun to watch us just mess everything up. there’s also a lot of pathos in that. There’s a lot of drama in a bunch of people who just keep getting their lives wrong and — because of character flaws — keep messing things up.

StrangerThings

speaking with Variety, Ross Duffer stated the final season of StrangerThings will be “sort of the [same] tone” as season one.

[Season 5], the way we see it, is kind of a culmination of all the seasons, so it’s sort of got a little bit from each. Whereas before each season was so distinctly… [Season] 3 is our big summer blockbuster season with big monsters, and [Season] 4 was the psychological horror. I think that what we’re trying to do is go back to the beginning a little bit, in sort of the tone of 1.


Welcome to Derry

So in conversation with VarietyHBO Max Head of Originals Sarah Aubrey described the upcoming it prequel series as “demented.”

We have been working very closely with Jason Fuchs, Brad Caleb Kane, Andy Musketti and Barbara Musketti. They’re so deep into this mythology and they have such a firm handle on the storytelling around these characters and also the demented scares that they’re putting into things. Sometimes I’m like, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ Just all the wild ways they think up to terrify us. You’ll be hearing more concretely about that development very soon. Andy is very involved in every bit of this, so that is the real recipe for success and for delighting fans.
